Rajasthan International Folk Festival (or Jodhpur RIFF or Jodhpur folk festival) is an annual music and art festival organized to promote traditional folk music and arts held at Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
The festival was first organized as a not-for-profit partnership between Mehrangarh Museum Trust and Jaipur Virasat Foundation in October 2007. The festival is timed to match day of full moon of the year (which in Northern India is also known as Sharad Purnima). The chief patron of the festival is Maharaja Gaj Singh. The festival is organized in and around Mehrangarh Fort.
The festival is supported by UNESCO as a “People’s Platform for Creativity and Sustainable Development”. In 2012 and 2013, Songlines regarded RIFF as one of the best 25 international festivals.
